iPad Supplier Foxconn Reopens After Deadly Explosion
Foxconn, the Chinese supplier of parts for Apple's iPads and iPhones has reopened its polishing sites after a May 20 explosion left three workers dead.
The explosion was caused by a build-up of dust in ducts at the polishing facility in Chengdu, the capital of China's Sichuan province. Foxconn was able to shift production to its other plants, so iPad supply is not expected to be affected.
Foxconn parent company, Hon Hai, has worked to improve working and living conditions for its employees, after a number of worker suicides led to pressure from Apple and other groups.
